Support the Artist

Some may say I live in a fantasy. I've shat in high cotton and slept under bridges.
There's something special about holding a piece of history "
My 1969 Islander 32 Sailboat 1/17, couldn't afford the docking went to a good home
. 1972 H2 Kawasaki ,tried to kill me
. 1964 John Lennon" In His Own Write" ,will never let go
and know the magic I feel working on the bicycle man/women's finest land machine ,the sailboat has the tie.
. This forum has some of the finest builders/artists and I don't want to alienate myself/anyone. The web has given us the ability to share skills and let others know that if you're looking for something with providence/history put it out there .
. When money is not an issue, there is an artist ready to build you something that has a soul.
. "you may say that I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one "

You won't find much disagreement here with the idea that custom bikes are cool.

But will they outlive the Poly-carbonated-biphenyls? I live in an environment contaminated with them and we have spent 50 years trying to eradicate them. Maybe more neutrons added to the molecules? Perhaps the art is in the way the molecules fold over upon themselves... Smiles, MH

"an atom" IMO, sounded more artistic than "proton, neutron, electron"

But see--- there's an answer for both of my questions.
